“Lunch TIme Crepes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Went with some friends for a lunch. A little bit disappointed that the lunch menu was limited but we still have a wonderful lunch of savoury crepes. The really were very very good and great value too. Service was average but very nice owners and staff. Waited a little bit too long for our food to arrive and then plates were cleared too quickly as one of our party was still eating their meal...this is a big NON ! and a petty hate of mine and seems to happen all the time in NZ - you do not clear the plates when all at the table have not finished their food! But will go back for dinner experience as this menu changes regularly for fresh local seasonal french bistro cooking so this looks very appealing. Have to reiterate - the flavour and lightness of the crepes was very very good and we will definitley go back - just work on the service a bit guys !

“French personality whimsical galette/crepe menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Mylene and Greg work to give you quick and personal service.
The menu choice is enticing - will I have this, or will I have this - oh I can choose to have a mix? - tasty carbs, potatoes/ blue cheese with light and fresh salad/walnuts/avo/tomato?
If you have a sweet tooth then the dessert crepe varies from the lemon and sugar to the rhubarb and icecream option.

“Just perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

Really good, well-cooked food. Great atmosphere, Mylene makes a wonderful host and Gregoire is a very talented chef. Glad we read the reviews and visited. You need to book as this is a very popular restaurant in what is an extremely hospitality-packed area.

“Will try for lunch next time rather than dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

We visited this place for dinner after reading reviews and maybe we expected a little too much. We felt somewhat crammed in, with my husband having to move each time people passed behind. The food was nice and good, but not really any different to my home cooked meals. The lamb chops and veges were nice. I had the gratin and salad, It would have been great with meat. Perhaps we selected the wrong items, but I didnt feel it was WOW, but it was a pleasant meal. However, I do think I would like to return to try the crepes for lunch
